London, England, 14 June 2012 | Tennis Australia

Matthew Ebden has fallen in the second round of the Queens Club event in London, going down in straight sets to Marin Cilic of Croatia.

The Aussie was unable to handle the sixth seed’s monstrous serve, falling 6-2 6-1 in just over one hour.

Cilic dropped just nine points on serve for the entire match, firing four aces and saving the only break point he faced during the last 32 encounter.

He moves through to the third round of the ATP 250 event and will next meet Czech Lukas Rosol.

Ebden has another week to fine-tune his grasscourt game ahead of the 2012 Wimbledon championships, which begin on Monday 25 June.

His defeat means there are no more Australians remaining in the draw at Queens.
